I’m in denial that July is over. It happens every single year though. May and June move nice and slow at a normal, relaxed pace and then you blink and July is over. So yep. Here we are on the final day of July. Luckily for me, I have some fun things lined up (a roadtrip, a quick trip to Cape May, and a visit to Charleston in October) so I guess it’s not too bad that summer is winding down.
I thought I’d share some of my July favorites. These are all things I either discovered this month or used too much to ignore!
Kiehl’s Micro-Blur Skin Perfector // This has been featured on my blog before, but now it’s stood about six weeks of serious testing. Verdict? Awesome. I can’t pinpoint if my skin is necessarily better because of the product… but my skin has improved and I can say that it serves as a great primer for my makeup application. (Garrett has been using it too and loves it… but you didn’t hear that from me.)
Gap Favorite V-Neck Tee // I’ve been keeping things super casual around here lately. If I’m not dressed up for a meeting or dinner, I’m wearing one of these v-necks. I have a bunch from Old Navy that are great, but the Gap ones are definitely way better quality. I’ve been wearing them with jeans, chino shorts, and running shorts. I think I need to really stock up on more though because I wear the ones I have so often!
Lemon & Line Navy Rope Bracelet // I’ve been wearing this like every single day! I either wear this one or this tan one. Such a fun addition to the stack, but I’ve also been wearing just the rope bracelets with nothing else. (As seen here in this Instagram and this Instagram!)
Krass & Co Running Shorts // My collection of these is big, but not big enough. I really have been rotating between my favorite prints and patterns. I wear them every morning when I’m out walking Teddy and I would be lying if I said I haven’t also been working while wearing them during the day. (With the Gap v-necks, of course.)
Water Bobble // I am in loveeeeee with this water bottle. It’s the perfect shape/size/weight/everything to carry around the city. It’s definitely also changing the way I drink water (aka drinking more)… which is amazing!
Paypal Mobile App // I don’t know why it took me so long to download this. I use Paypal a lot, both personally and with my blog so it’s been great to be able to access my accounts on the go. And a lot of stores in NYC are accepting Paypal now, which seriously makes it easy to pay.
Starbucks Iced Coffee // Yep, saying it again… I’m obsessed. I don’t think the taste is for everyone, but I definitely love it. It’s worth trying some of the bottled Starbucks drinks even if the coffee ones aren’t for you. It’s so easy and I like being able to twist a lid shut when I’m running from place to place.
Poppin Pens // I’m not picky about pens (if it writes, I’ll use it), but I definitely play favorites. These are THE best I’ve used in a long time. They write smoothly and look adorable. I have one currently in each handbag I’ve been using, one at my desk, one at my coffee table, and one that Garrett stole (and loves). They come in different colors, but the ink is either black or blue so be sure to read the description to know what you’re getting!
